"The 2012 Valdisanti is based on Cabernet Sauvignon, with Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc in supporting roles. This is a beautiful expression with a full and generous disposition. The wine opens to a dark garnet color and thick consistency. You very much taste the Cabernet in this vintage, with dark fruit aromas backed by savory spice and smoke. This wine shows slight tertiary aromas as well that add to the background complexity and texture."

James Suckling 92
"Aromas of licorice, tar and berry follow through to a full body, velvety tannins and a savory finish. Rich and powerful.  Drink or hold."

Vinous Media 90 
"The 2012 Valdisanti is Tolaini's Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend. Raspberry jam, cloves, menthol, new leather, French oak and licorice give the 2012 its dark, powerful personality. Youthful, rich, dark fruit; berry and cassis aromas with notable French oak spice. On the palate,Valdisanti is full-bodied with deep but reserved fruit flavors framed by rich oak. The excellent balance of fruit intensity with fine tannins indicates a cellar-worthy wine. "

The grapes for this blend come from the estate's 2 vineyards, Montebello and San Giovanni.  A portion of the whole berries are fermented in French oak and a portion in stainless steel. Aged for 16 months in barriques (70% new), of which 6 months are on the lees.

Don't Stop at One! - Drinking beautifully right now, but also will be a joy to come back to after 5-10 years in the cellar. A bouquet of dark cherry, spice, and wild mushroom fill the glass. The entry of this wine is rich with firm texture that becomes more and more integrated with air. Blackberries, kirsch, and scorched earth fill the pallet with pleasure. Don't stop at One!

Great taste for a great value - Immediately drinkable. Just a smooth finishing red with blend of body and flavor.
